Seven years ago,Cornelius and I used to ride the train together every morning on our way to work,bring each other hot tea during lunch time,and pop into one another’s classroom at the end of the day to see what our kiddos had been up to. People used to ask us if we ever got sick of each other,and the answer was always no. We never did. Minor,as Cornelius was known then,was as friendly as ever,full of jokes,and it was the ultimate strength to our relationship that we got to share students. He was the Minor to my Ms. Kass,and we loved it.
If you asked us back then,I’m not sure we would have described our future lives as they are now-Me,still teaching-but this time a Working Mom. Him,still educating,but this time as a Staff Developer. Me,fufilling two parent duty and curating the house while Him,enduring grueling 16 hour work days walking around as a famous Black person in China. This life is one of sustenance,but this shiznit is HARD. For the both of us.
Although this being married on dual sides of the world thing is difficult,we both know the dual sides of the world part is temporary. And as much tenacity as all this involves,we both know it’s good for us. We enjoy the challenge.
Just yesterday,Cornelius was describing the ride-your-moped to work schtick that was a completely pleasant surprise. Upon arriving to his hotel,they handed him the keys to as he described it “One of those Chinatown Delivery Bikes”. And that Shanghai is 8th Ave Brooklyn times 100. Or,more accurately speaking,times 1, 000, 000. The work in itself is no easy task. There’s all that immense pressure,educational rigor blah blah blah that he has endure. But it always makes him stronger,brighter.

As for me,Soleil and I completed our first solo jet journey! We went on a three day,two night,Mom and Child adventure to Springboro,Ohio to see my best friend,Kristen,that I’ve been pleased to know since age 11. Soleil is the sweetest,most perfect side kick any mama could ask for. She basically could coach other babies on the Principles of Good Flying Behavior. When we arrived to Ohio,we learned the tenants of carseat riding,toddler wisdom (Kristen has a tiny cohort of 3 kids ages 18 months,3,and 6),and billygoat petting. Soleil was down with the toddler wisdom,not so much with the carseat and billygoats. She is definitely our Brooklyn Baby.

Recommendation on 2 stroke high quality oil2004-03-28 01:32:31 by sparkalina
For my scooter.
I haven't had to add any since I purchased it last September due to being in storage for winter and now it's time to add some to the tank (separate oil receptable)
Anyway, the store manager said high quality, but I know when I get to the auto store I'm going to be standing in front of an entire aisle of motor oil.
Any brands stand above the rest?
If it matters the oil that is in the tank is blue-ish and take it easy on me, I'm learning motor scooter engine repair slowly.
Now give me postal jeep or volkswagen and I can fix it, but my scooter has such tiny parts with crappy access
2 stroke motors are very easy to maintain2005-04-18 15:58:24 by delta9
The only maintence really needed is occasionaly changing the points and cleaning the carburator. There are a few scooter shops in the city that do maintainace but its easy to learn on your own. It's also handy to cary some spare spark plugs as they are known to foul. You also need to mix 2-cycle oil in with the gas.
